over the farmer's hill you'll see a sign with a purple mark in the corner, mark over the purple with a black mark (preferably ash or silt) and follow the direction it points; it changes. wade your way through the marsh down the hill and be vigilant of large fish, they're carnivorous in the region. now from here you should spot by now the ladder that leads up the north, and the horse that stands by it. do not worry about feeding the horse, it has been placed there to watch for all time. mount it and it should communicate the steps beyond the ladder, dismount it and ascent said ladder until you reach the third ledge. by now you should be near a small brood of dragons in the alcove, but disregard them and sidestep carefully around the ledge to the next ladder, this one a man made fixture made of rope and reed. make it to the top and you should find a midnight green scaled dragon of no imposing size, sleeping if you followed the instructions of the previous guide and map.
a magic rope should be coiled near the head of the reed ladder; grab this rope and lasso it around the dragon's head before it awakes (you must do this at the start of dusk) or it will awaken and increase its size dramatically. this bearded dragon, let us call him Fagromilias, should be prevented from fire breathing with the magic noose (which shall also calm the beast considerably), but should any complications occur, abandon your quest promptly.
